Any word when we will see the new Resido alarm system they showed off?



hey DIY rasam George from alarm grid today we're gonna be talking about the recipient roller and the Qantas IQ 2 plus panels now both of these systems are some of the most advanced systems that are out in the market right now they both offer a whole lot of features that you guys can start incorporating into your security and a home eco system as far as z-wave and home automation goes and honestly when you're choosing between both of these systems it just comes down to preference and the different features that they have to offer and I'm gonna go ahead and get into that right now the first thing on that I want to touch base on is the similarity between the panel so off to my right here I have the lyric system seven inch screen display and off to my left here I have the IQ 2 plus again same 7 inch display as you can see the lyric system is a little bit thicker comes off the wall a little bit more and the IQ 2 plus is a little more tablet shaped right it's a flat tablet looking device and they both have a camera at the front if you look at the the center of the IQ 2 plus and the center of the lyric they both have a built in camera so basically whenever you disarm the system the camera takes a picture and it sends it to whatever interactive app you have with the monitoring plan that you're using and they both also have a built-in 85 decibel sounder when the alarm goes off the sounder saw sounds off at 85 decibels if you want a kind of measurement of what that sounds like it's about the same sound as you honking your car horn and they both offer encryption with the sensors so the lyric system works with 345 megahertz Honeywell and 2gig sensors and it is also compatible with the six series sensors which are 128-bit encrypted AES the IQ 2 Plus panels all have power G built in which also support 128 bit encryption sensors and if you get the correct version of the IQ 2 plus because there's three different ones if you get one that has the s-line a daughterboard card it also works with the three hundred nineteen point five world encryption that the s-line sensors have as well now going back to the encryption on the panels the main difference between the lyric and the IQ - is that the IQ - there's three different versions which is what I was mentioning before the lyric just has one version it that one version works with the Honeywell sensors way or 2gig sensors which transmit at 345 megahertz and it also works with the six series which are 128 bit encrypted and then the IQ 2 comes in three different flavors it comes every single one includes the power G sensors which are the encryption the encrypted sensors and then every other like the three panels they all come with a power G and then the main difference is that each panel has a different daughter board card built in so for instance there's one with power G and DSC sensors there's another one with power G and Honeywell and 2gig there's another one with power G and inner logics and s-line alright so there's three different ones now what makes these panels stand out from each other are the advanced features for instance the lyric works with home kit so if you if you're an iOS house and Apple house you guys might find yourselves wanting to go with a lyric cuz the lyric integrates with home kit now what this means for you I OS users over there is if you guys have home kit and you guys want a system that works with it the lyric is the one to go with if you guys have home kit devices such as lights locks thermostats you can actually use the home kit app and the lyric system to bridge that gap that you maybe couldn't have done before for instance the lyric doesn't work with those home kit devices directly however if you enable the home kit and you get monitored you can actually go ahead and use that home kit app to integrate these lights locks thermostats with the lyric system so whenever the leader calls armed the way you guys can use your your home kit lights cause scenes cause reactions to the so whatever the lyric is triggering now the cool thing with the IQ - doesn't work with homekit but it does have partitioning so by partitioning what I mean by that is basically you're able to control an arm a certain a certain zone in your house or a certain group of sensors in your house in the penalty from the rest of the system so some people might have an office in their house and you might want to partition that off as a partition one so basically you can arm your office space sensors door sensors whatever it is independently from the rest of the house so that's something cool that the IQ 2 has it also has facial recognition with the camera so if it doesn't recognize your face while you're trying to disarm it will not allow you or it'll actually send you a signal to the app and to the Central Station it also has Bluetooth disarming so if you guys have Bluetooth enabled and you guys get within a certain range of the system it will automatically disarm the system and it also has on some alarm comm compatible cameras it actually allows you to livestream the video to the actual system itself so if you guys have any alarm comm compatible video cameras then they can actually live stream to the actual IQ - you used to be able to do that on the Honeywell sent on the Honeywell systems with the old legacy cameras but those are discontinued and the new generation cameras only work through the app so that's just something to keep in mind if you're looking for a local video on the panel you would need to get an IQ 2 plus and again the live streaming is only enabled if you're monitored so just something to keep in mind now not only are very different in advanced features but the interactive services that they use are completely different as well the lyric is a Honeywell system so that means it uses Total Connect 2.0 and I'm sorry I said Honeywell system is actually recipient and he uses Total Connect 2.0 that's the app that allows you to arm and disarm the system control z-wave devices set up email text message notifications it's also what you would use to look at your new generation HD cameras the IQ 2 plus uses alarm calm alarm calm again same thing as Total Connect 2.0 it's just a different look that allows you to arm and disarm control your z-wave devices setup email and text message notifications you can look at the alarm calm videos not only on the panel but through the app as well and both systems they have geofence features they allow you to check on the status of your sensors and of the system and clear any alarms you may have now one thing about the lyric system is that is that it does not come with the cellular communicator built-in it only has the Wi-Fi you do have the option of adding a cellular communicator to the system right now we have the AT&T LTE and the Verizon LTE communicator is soon to come out as well for the lyric the IQ 2 plus comes remember I said it comes in three different flavors power G and the three different other legacy daughter word cards well it also comes with two different communicators it'll come with a Wi-Fi communicator and then there's there's two versions of the three different flavors so each each single IQ - we were either come with a Verizon or an AT&T LTE and you want to make sure that you choose the one that's better that has the best signal in your area so cool thing about the IQ too is you don't have to buy the son of your communicator separately it's already built into the system the other thing is that they both have z-wave built in the one thing is that it says the lyric system has normal z-wave and the IQ 2 plus has z-wave plus so if you guys have z-wave plus devices you guys can actually use those z-wave plus features with the IQ 2 plus you would not be able to use the z-wave plus features with the lyric system because that only has normal z-wave now let's get down to the monitoring for both of these systems since the IQ 2 uses alarm comm your monitoring rates are usually going to be more because it's using a cellular path Jessie you guys know requires all of their customers whoever's using LARM comm to be on a setting their path or to have a set of your path enabled if you have a system that does Wi-Fi inside of your yes you can enable the Wi-Fi but you can't run the system on Wi-Fi only it needs to be running on cellular as well so with these systems you cannot sign up with on a Wi-Fi plan that you may see in other companies or ourselves so if you're going to be doing an IQ to plus system that uses alarm comm you're going to be signing up for one of the higher level monitoring plans because of the set of your fees and because of alarm comm if you get the residual Honeywell lyric controller those you can actually run on an IP path only and sign up for the less less expensive plans and you only need to go to the higher level monitoring plans which are the set of your plans if you add a set of your communicator to the system but you do have the option of running internet paths only now granted we always recommend using setting there as a backup communicator anyways just so that your monitoring is more reliable in the event that your Wi-Fi fails and if your system is only connected to Wi-Fi well guess what your system won't be reporting out so anywhere if it does not have the cellular communicator built in so it's always recommended to add cellular to the system so if you guys don't have any cellular communication in that area or you just don't want to pay the high set of your monitoring fees then you can definitely go with a residual alarm system or even the lyric system which has Wi-Fi built in it does allow you to do internet only paths so if you guys want to do the lower price monitoring plans internet paths only you can go ahead and get the lyric system or any other recipients system if you guys have any questions at all whatsoever feel free to email us at support at alarm code comm liked this video we found it that it was helpful make sure you subscribe to the YouTube channel and enable notifications so whenever we upload new videos you guys get notified I'm Jorge and I'll see you guys next time
